01:25:23 Quit datachild ("deny the day of towmorrow")
01:25:27SoapI made a build yesterday, right after commit #12120, and found that kernel on cop #6 no longer worked. So, instead of being a good boy and resyncing the patch I removed #12120, applied the patch, and made a build which functioned smoothly.
01:26:21 Join Hotfusion [0] (
01:26:33SoapI reapplied #12120 today, updated SVN, applied kernel on cop #7, and my ipod was running like molassas in january.
01:26:49Hotfusionman I hate my xp. 2 gigs of ram and if I have to many things open it wont open anything and I have ram left over
01:26:54Hotfusionanyway hi people
01:27:00Soapso I removed kernel on cop #7, recompiled, and my ipod ran fine again.
01:27:25LloreanSoap: Did you check the debug screen to see if the threads were supposedly on the COP?
01:27:28Soapwow Hotfusion. I only have 320 megs here, and no such problems.
01:27:36SoapLlorean: no I did not.
01:27:37Hotfusionmy xp is weird
01:27:52Mouser_XSo's mine, but it opens what I want.
01:28:02Mouser_XUptime: 3 weeks 21 hours 15 minutes 30 seconds
01:28:06Mouser_XThough, I should probably reboot...
01:28:06Hotfusionit's like I have to many things open
01:28:19*Llorean points out that this is #Rockbox before OT gets too much on a roll.
01:28:44LloreanSoap: Though it'd be odd for it to be slower with COP than without, unless something else strange is going on.
01:28:48Hotfusionsvn done eh
01:28:53Hotfusioncool have to try it
01:30:11SoapLlorean: I am in the process of taking current svn minus 12120, plus kernel on cop #6 and doing a compile to try and narrow it down. My theory (as uneducated as theories can get) was that kernel on cop #7 wasn't synced 100% correctly, and I was trying to narrow it down to that - with all the PP commits today I thought elimination was a good idea. BUT - I should have done what you suggested.
01:31:17SoapFor it was running more slowly with the patch than it ever did stock. It wasn't a lack-of-improvement I was seeing, rather a degredation.
01:32:14LloreanMaybe about half the speed?

01:46:33Soapthe way I removed 12120 before was to view the diff from the front page, save the text as a .patch file, and then do a "patch -p0 -R" with the resulting text file. I don't see an easier way on the "working with SVN" wiki page, but I must believe there is an easier way. Is there?
01:48:04LloreanYou could just have SVN output a diff between 12120 and 12119 I imagine, though I don't know the exact command you'd do to set that up.
01:48:19dionoeausing svn merge svn:// svn:// .

03:50:16LloreanThough, the old version would've used /dev/sdc1 anyway.
03:50:17dopewell i'm not on osx
03:50:22dopeso i skipped that part
03:50:51dopeall good now though :)
03:50:51webguest97Llorean can i flash now the way i usually have to? load bootloader.iriver from iriver_flash plugin?
03:50:52LloreanWhich part?
03:51:16dopethe mac osx users only part where they talk about unmounting the ipod
03:51:17Lloreanwebguest97: Is there some specific reason you're updating the bootloader?
03:51:23dopein there i see the numbers are partitions
03:51:41webguest97no but i loaded the flash version. and then restarted the player and got the codec failure again
03:51:53Lloreandope: Yes, but it's generally expected that linux users know to an extent how the /dev/sda represents the device and /dev/sda1 represents the partition on the device.
03:52:04dopei'm still learning
03:52:12dopeso that's something new i know now
03:52:17Lloreanwebguest97: What do you mean "loaded the flash version and then restarted the device?"
03:52:40LloreanAll I told you to do was click on rockobox.iriver before trying to flash.
03:53:02LloreanIf you restart after doing that, you'll go back to using the outdated copy in your flash memory, which may not work with the newest copies of the codecs on your disk.
03:53:26webguest97i loaded the rockbox.iriver and it restarted. then shut off the player and then i got codec failure. how do i make it always load the new version?

03:55:04dopedoesn't rockbox have themes?
03:55:32Lloreandope: Yes. They're discussed in the manual and can be found at the WpsGallery wiki page.

03:56:35Lloreanwebguest97: What file are you trying to run with iriver_flash?
03:56:36webguest97after i open rombox.iriver with iriver_flash
03:56:46LloreanThen you need to update your bootloader first.
03:59:21webguest97Llorean: ok i did both. now which do i want as default? ram image or rom image?
04:00:27Lloreanwebguest97: Um, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to tell you what you want. It's your choice.
04:01:18webguest97whats the difference between ram and rom image?
04:02:24LloreanThe RAM image is copied to ram. It'll respond slightly faster but takes up RAM. The ROM image is executed from ROM. It may be slightly slower (I'm not sure if it is, or if it'll be noticeable) but uses less total RAM.
04:02:54webguest97ok ill use the rom image then.

04:06:03webguest97thank you very much Llorean. now i have to do this every time i upgrade rockbox? the flash procedure.
04:06:18LloreanYep. That's the cost of running it in flash.
04:06:24webguest59hey i am installing rockbox right now. i am working with command prompts and am having some trouble
04:06:25LloreanYou shouldn't need to ever do the bootloader again
04:06:32webguest59sorry for interrupting the conversation
04:06:33LloreanBut the in-RAM and in-ROM images need to be reflashed
04:06:39webguest59i really need help
04:06:51webguest97Llorean ok but i have to open rombox.iriver with the iriver_flash plugin is all i have to do?

04:07:38webguest59what am i supposed to do if this part happens?
04:07:45dopei'd assume yes
04:08:13Lloreandope: Most themes include several folders, and should be extracted either to the root, or to .rockbox
04:08:19webguest97Llorean ok. i didnt do rockbox.iriver this time. shoud i do it now?
04:08:32Lloreanwebguest59: That's what your command prompt says to you, exactly? A direct quote?

04:09:12webguest59this is what it tells me

04:11:32webguest59i'm using xp. "dir"? what does that mean?
04:11:39LloreanIt's a command... at the command prompt
04:11:44LloreanIt shows you the contents of the folder you're in.
04:11:50LloreanWithout the quotes. Just dir
04:12:02webguest59well i'm on the first step of installing the bootloader
04:12:10webguest59when shoul di type in dir?
04:12:15webguest59*should i
04:12:16LloreanAt the command prompt.
04:12:23webguest59before anything else?
04:12:34LloreanI'm just trying to find something out, it has nothing to do with installing
04:13:05webguest59i typed in dir
04:13:11webguest59it showed me a directory of things on my computer
04:13:23webguest59it is still asking me to enter a command number
04:13:45LloreanAre the exact words "Enter a command number" ?
04:13:55webguest59"enter command number"
04:14:02webguest59it shows up in a white box
04:14:15LloreanThere is something configured strangely about your computer.
04:14:29webguest59is there anything that i can do to fix this?
04:14:35webguest59maybe if i log in as somebody else?
04:14:49LloreanThe "Enter command number" box is the result of some other software installed on it or some configuration setting. I have no way of knowing what is causing this.
04:15:05webguest59well this isn't good news
04:15:29webguest59no ideas on what might be the type of program that is causing this?
04:15:49webguest59or how to get past this?
04:16:37LloreanIt's your responsibility to know how your own computer is set up. Considering the number of programs out there, it could be anything all the way down to something a friend of yours wrote and installed as a prank.
04:17:01webguest59that's too bad
04:17:11LloreanIt could also simply be an aspect of windows I'm not aware of.
04:17:12webguest59i wish i knew more about computer programming
04:17:20LloreanBut Google didn't suggest anything to me immediately.
04:17:27webguest59i searched it too
04:17:37webguest59it seems that it is usually associated with doing certain things
04:17:42webguest59in the command prompt
04:17:49webguest59like while using certain programs or something like that
04:20:14webguest59 think i found a program that might help
04:20:19webguest59prompt pal

04:41:58Lloreanwebguest59: It's in the manual.
04:42:24LloreanDrkepilogue: That seems to be a bug with the current version of iPodPatcher. If you have your original bootpartition.bin, try restoring that and then reinstalling the bootloader and see if it helps
04:42:35Chris_how about a tough question: are Julius' builds all I need to run his themes? I've installed a ton of different builds today, including his and Senab's, and I can't get it to work still
04:43:08LloreanChris_: They're Unsupported Builds. You pretty much need to ask him if you have a problem with his custom builds.
04:43:17Chris_gah, go figure
04:43:21Drkepiloguei uninstall the bootloader and reinstall it a few times, same result
04:43:40LloreanDrkepilogue: "Uninstall the bootloader" is different from "Restoring the original bootpartition"
04:43:48Chris_Drkepilogue: just a thought: try restoring your iPod using iTunes and reinstalling RockBox
04:44:28Drkepiloguehmm, Lorean, what is the difference???*i sound kinda dumb*
04:44:55LloreanDrkepilogue: The difference is whether you use ipodpatcher N -d, or ipodpatcher N -w bootpartition.bin...
04:45:59Drkepiloguei use this
04:45:59Drkepilogueipodpatcher [device] -w bootpartition.bin
04:46:15LloreanAnd that bootpartition.bin was from an iPod with *nothing* installed on it, and never had been?
04:46:32Drkepiloguethis is the first thing i did
04:46:42Drkepiloguebefore the other step...
04:46:48Drkepilogueoh maybe cept for the scanning
04:46:58LloreanYeah, but some people have, say, iPodLinux on it before, remove that, and then install Rockbox.
04:47:11LloreanOr install Rockbox, remove it, make bootpartition.bin, reinstall Rockbox with the new bootloader.
04:47:54Drkepiloguei just restored it via itune...

04:48:41Drkepiloguecould be
04:48:49Drkepiloguebut it works fine on my 4g color
04:49:13Drkepilogueunless there a newer version after the bootloader with the *set hold to load OF*
04:49:26LloreanDrkepilogue: I didn't say the problem was with the bootloader.

04:50:22LloreanAnd it seems to affect Minis the most, though it's shown up on 5Gs I believe when they're upgraded using -a to overwrite the old bootloader rather than restoring their bootpartition first.
04:50:27blindWhat's the name of the unofficial rockbox firmware for 4G and 5G ipods? Mine was freezing up, and someone recommended it, and now I'm trying to do my friend's iPod and I can't remember the name.

04:50:56blindmikeage, thanks
04:50:57Lloreanblind: There's not one for 5Gs designed to reduce freeing as there's not a known freezing bug on the 5g
04:51:04scorchebut there is no *the* unofficial build
04:51:06blindoh, it's not for the fifth? my bad.
04:51:16Lloreanblind: There's no frequency scaling bug on the 5G
04:51:39blindWell, his was freezing up so I figured I'd give him the same firmware.
04:51:52LloreanHis 5G is freezing?
04:52:03scorchewas he using the official build?
04:52:03Soapthe 5th / nano are rocks. sleek, sexy, heavily marketed rocks.
04:52:22blindyeah, he was using the official build on a 5G and it would freeze.

04:52:34scorcheSoap: i think "heavily marketed" is an understatement
04:52:38blindThe playback would work, but the screen was fucked, and you couldn't navigate.

10:05:10ConstructingGoddoes rockbox have a shuffle mode where once one song is played it won't play that song again untill all the remaining songs in that playlist have been played at least once?
10:05:24LloreanThat's what shuffling a playlist *does*
10:05:25***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
10:05:32LloreanIt's kinda the definition of "shuffle"
10:06:03ConstructingGod.... no some shuffle will repeat a played song before playing another song that hasn't been played (in the same playlist)
10:06:34JdGordonno.. thats random play.. rockbox doesnt do that
10:06:35LloreanThat's not a proper shuffle then.
10:06:38JdGordonrockbox does a shuffle
10:06:46LloreanThat's technically a mis-named Random as JdGordon said.
10:06:46Mikachuyou can shuffle the playlist, and you can play in shuffle mode, they're two different things

10:07:34ConstructingGodwill rockbox do what my question asked?
10:07:49ConstructingGodok how do i set it up to do so
10:07:56JdGordonjust enable shuffle mode
10:07:56ConstructingGodbecause i have 2 shuffle modes in my player
10:08:03ConstructingGodwhich one
10:08:05JdGordonfrom the playback menu
10:08:12JdGordonthere is only 1 shuffle mode in rb
10:08:15Mikachueasiest is to go to the quickscreen and select Shuffle
10:08:16safetydanThere is only one shuffle in rockbox
10:08:16ConstructingGodthe one under repeat or the one under shuffle on/off?
10:08:26safetydanRepeat? That's about repeating the whole playlist
10:08:52JdGordonrepeat shuffle is something different.. that means shuffle the playlist when its finished and start again
10:08:53safetydanif repeat is on, and you reach the end of the playlist, it will start again at the beginning
10:08:55ConstructingGodso the regular shuffle mode (on the left side) is the one I want to mess with?
10:09:38ConstructingGodand that won't playback any songs already played on that playlist right?
10:10:05LloreanI do believe it describes it in the manual.
10:10:05ConstructingGodthank you!

12:03:51LloreanThe beveled ones look nice. Not my personal thing, but I think people will like them.
12:04:15midkayi'd considered allowing it, but i can't really stand transparent-thus-aliased bitmaps.. especially on like big text.
12:05:09LloreanI don't really think any of the current plugins should really allow custom backdrops

12:07:15hcswell, it won't be that way for every track, I assure you
12:07:20hcslots of variation between SPCs
12:07:32hcsUncharted Waters 2 has been the slowest I've seen on iPod so far.
12:07:35XavierGrdo you know some very intensive ones?
12:07:39XavierGrh okay
12:07:52hcs(awesome music, too, highly recommended)
12:08:34hcsnow I've got to see how this affects iPods, if it is damaging I'll have to make that whole thing conditional

12:09:32XavierGrheh magic indeed
12:10:03hcsI'm glad it worked so well
12:10:35XavierGrnow I will test uncharted waters 2 too
12:10:54XavierGrbut I think Castlevania 4 spc tracks are quite intensive
12:11:14hcsMast in the Mist was the one I noticed first

12:22:51Mikachuwhat hcs said
12:23:11Mikachuseiken densetsu 2 is secret of mana
12:23:27XavierGrI still feel very nostalgic when I listen to Secret of Mana music
12:23:37Mikachuyou should play sd3 then
12:23:41Mikachuthere is a fan translation
12:23:53XavierGrI played Seiken Densetsu 3 on an emulator (ZSens)
12:23:57XavierGryeah it was quite good

12:39:12hcsLlorean: please do continue
12:39:40Lloreanhcs: Well, for example the very short "The players have gone to sleep at the inn" sound from FFVI ("Nighty Night" it seems to be titled") is about 6 seconds... shows a track length of 2:55
12:40:21hcsI'm only reading the "basic" tags in the header, there's a whole different tagging system that sticks extra data at the end of the file
12:40:43hcsall sets from seem to be tagged correctly with the basic tags
12:40:48Lloreanhcs: So if a file is improperly tagged it could show up with a length of either 2:55 or 3:05?
12:41:00LloreanThese seem to be the two lengths I get on the files.

12:47:04JdGordonthe new menus are going to be paniful to bring in :'(
12:47:18LloreanBagder: I was thinking "Release" "Current Build" (which would be the SVN builds page) and "Extras" (A page containing a link to the daily fonts, a containing rockdoom.wad and freedoom.wad or doom1.wad, and a link to the WPS Gallery)
12:47:37LloreanBagder: Then, moving the current Daily Builds page to a link on the actual SVN Builds page entitled simply "Archived Versions"
12:47:41mattzzBagder, I am currently working on a little memory monitor, would that be of some help for the development process?
12:48:11BagderLlorean: I like it
12:49:12LloreanI think it'd simplify for people what to download, and maybe even reduce "Where do I find the fonts" and "Where do I download Doom" questions.

12:56:32hcsit's a shame that I have to mutilate these SPCs to see how they work with default length...
12:56:44markunif the ipods only have the 24MHz you can still make everything, but the 44.1kHz ones will be a bit off

12:57:38markunhcs: 24 I believe
12:57:47Lloreanmarkun: My concern was just when the main unit is on Hold, and the remote isn't. There's some real strangeness there.
12:58:00LloreanIs that supposed to be working?
12:58:05markunLlorean: yes, that's because of the "LCD Power off" feature
12:58:40markunLlorean: if you disable it in the menu it will also work with the backlight off
12:58:47markunwith hold on even
12:58:47LloreanAh, okay
12:58:59LloreanWhy does the LCD Power Off prevent the remote from working fully?

13:21:24mattzzor ExtraDownloadsForRockbox ...
13:21:26Lloreanbluebrother: "Before you begin, be aware that this process can require a decent amount of time and technical knowledge and should not be attempted by a casual user, but rather by those intending to invest time in development" maybe?
13:21:33*mattzz has to cool down
13:21:52*scorche hands mattzz a block of ice to sit on
13:22:12bluebrotherLlorean, yes. Better worded than my try ;-)
13:22:13*Mikachu puts an empty bucket under mattzz's chair
13:22:23*mattzz is making a zizzzling noise
13:22:39bluebrotherbut I was simply thinking if that would help those "how to install (*sic*) patches" questions in the forums
13:22:53LloreanI really don't know.
13:23:05Mikachumaybe people think patches do not require compiling because one install step is called "ipodpatcher"
13:23:10LloreanConsidering how blatantly people can ignore bold red text at the start of the ipodinstallation, you might need a blink tag.
13:23:23bluebrothermaybe they think it because MS usually ships binary patches.
13:23:45Mikachuyou could probably form a complete windows installation from their patches :)
13:23:52scorcheand many other companies put out binary patches as well
13:24:14bluebrotherand those people patching software to override installation restrictions / license etc. use binary patches as well
13:24:23LloreanI think most people ask about how to use patches *before* they get to the simple guide to compiling page
13:24:30bluebrotherin fact, except for the open source world patches are usually binary
13:24:47LloreanThe most common question isn't "how do I apply patches" or "What do I do with them" so much as "Where do I download them to?"
13:24:58bluebrothersure, but it could help keeping them away from actually trying it after they read the first lines of the page
13:25:11bluebrotherinstead of repeatedly asking about the same stuff
13:25:36LloreanYeah, I think something like that belongs there. A disclaimer of sorts

13:45:32XavierGrBagder: What do you think about adding a wiki search box in the front page?
13:45:55Bagderyeah, I've been thinking about that as well
13:46:15Bagdermaybe later, family time coming up now...
13:46:16scorcheI would rather have a title entry box than a search box
13:46:16XavierGrit would be sweet to not have to click on the wiki link each time I search for something specific :P
13:46:47Mikachudon't you people have bookmarks? :)
13:48:11LloreanI just type into my google search box... ;)
13:48:37scorchehence why i would rather have a title entry box
13:48:42Mikachuyou can make a search box for that in firefox

15:01:44midkayhrm.. quick coding question.
15:02:21midkayif i have an int year = 2007.. any quick way to split that up into seperate ints? i can get the "2" by year/1000 and the "7" by year%10.. what about the zeros?
15:03:27midkayah. think i got it.
15:03:33Mikachu+ and -
15:03:53Mikachuint thousand = 2007/1000
15:04:08Mikachuint hundred = (2007-thousand*1000) / 100
15:04:24Mikachu(not guaranteeing it's the best way)
15:04:47midkaytesting this method..
15:06:34midkayyeah, it works..
15:06:57midkayyear%1000 = thousands..
15:07:11midkayyear/1000 = thousands. :)
15:07:13midkayyear%1000/100 = hundreds..
15:07:17midkayyear%100/10 = tens..
15:07:22midkayyear%10 = ones.
15:07:28amiconnugh, lots of unnecessary divisions
15:07:49Mikachuit's not exactly something in an inner loop
15:08:01*midkay reads up, wondering where amiconn proposed his bette solution..
15:08:02amiconnNah, not lots, bu tsome extra ones
15:08:18amiconnMikachu's method needs 4 divisions, yours needs 6
15:09:23midkaynot sure i even get his...
15:09:36amiconnyear/1000 <= #1
15:09:46amiconnyear%1000/100 <= #2 and #3
15:09:54midkay(2007-thousand*1000) / 100 -> (2007 - 2*1000) / 100 -> (2007 - 2000) / 100 -> 7 / 100?
15:10:02amiconnyear%100/10 <= #4 and #5

15:11:27Mikachuwould be nice if you could just do year & 9000 :)
15:12:18midkayi think i'd prefer a bit less efficiency for something shorter and much more understandable (to me..)
15:12:21amiconnIf you just need base 10 and it's a long number, you could (mis-)use snprintf
15:13:52amiconnchar buf[8]; snprintf(buf, sizeof buf, "%07d", year);
15:14:23midkayi don't see what that will do..
15:14:50amiconnThen you can read out: ones=buf[6]-'0'; tens = buf[5]-'0'; hundreds = buf[4]-'0'; thousands = buf[3]-'0';
15:15:03amiconnIt's not very elegant, but it should work

15:44:20webguest33I got an ipod 5G ( video ) .. and installed with Ipod linux , Rockbox and the normal Apple OS
15:44:48webguest33Its just when I turn on my ipod, automaticly rockbox opens..
15:45:31dan_awebguest33: The rockbox bootloader goes into rockbox unless you are telling it not to.
15:45:34webguest33First when i used the center button and the menu button, my ipodloader opened.. Do you know how to get rockbox into the loader
15:46:12webguest33How can I set the apple OS to the normal loader, like the "first"loader..
15:47:39webguest33The only way to choose between rockbox, ipodlinux, and apple os for me is center −−> menu ... and then quick the menu button, thats when I come into the ipodloader.. When I dont do anything automatic rockbox opens. How do I change it ??
15:48:42dan_awebguest33: Using the Rockbox bootloader, you can't. You might be better off with Loader2 from ipodlinux (which gives you a configurable menu) - but we can't help you with that

19:46:29barrywardellbluebrother: no fm radio
19:46:45mattzzamiconn, to draw a inverted rect.
19:46:47bluebrotherah. Don't need that anyway.
19:47:03bluebrotherI'm watching one at ebay, but surprisingly there are no other bidders ...
19:47:51amiconnmattzz: Just lcd_set_drawmode(DRMODE_SOLID|DRMODE_INVERSEVID); and then print your text
19:48:09amiconnNo need to complement rectangles
19:48:43mattzzamiconn, I see.
19:49:32mattzzamiconn, do you have any idea what happened to the recorder builds? why has the firmware grown so much?
19:49:32amiconnIf you use DRMODE_COMPLEMENT the way you do, it will look different from using DRMODE_INVERSEVID unless your foreground and background colours are exact complements
19:50:20amiconnFeaturitis, and many devs not caring about binary size :(
19:51:10amiconnAll recorders are now too big for rombox (for quite a while, even though the 'red' for the v1 started just a few days ago)
19:51:44amiconnThe builds don't turn red immediately when they become too big, this is a linker quirk
19:52:32mattzzI think rombox has been too big for quite some time for the recorders. But this keeps me from compiling regular rockbox firmware images
19:52:37amiconnThe linker doesn't complain as long as the start of a section still fits into the memory area, even though the end might already be past the end
19:53:09amiconnmattzz: It doesn't. That's the reason why archos rombox is linked at the end of the build process
19:53:44amiconnAn error there leaves you with ordinary rockbox and all plugins already built
19:54:00mattzzajbrec.ajz - right, there it is....
19:54:04amiconnI have and use a recorder myself
19:54:21bluebrotherwasn't the menu rework supposed to cut the binary size?
19:54:38amiconnbluebrother: Yes. Menu rework isn't in yet
19:55:03bluebrotherso it's like text configuration increased the size, menu rework will decrease it again?
19:55:37amiconnText configuraton decreased binary size a little, but one preparation for the settings rework increased it
19:56:10bluebrotherah. Haven't followed the exact differenct between text configuration and menu rework recently
19:56:48amiconn26 Jan 05:45Jonathan Gordon "Add 4 settings which were somehow missed during the conversion to config.cfg. Adds the LANG_ id for each setting to get them ready for the upcoming menu changes"
19:57:11amiconnThe added LANG_IDs triggered the red for recorders
19:58:46Mikachui saw some places in the code that do things like
19:58:56Mikachustatic const char[] no = "no";
19:58:59 Quit pyrokenx ()
19:59:08Mikachuand then no is used in the code, but using "no" and no variable takes up less space
19:59:24Mikachuat least when i made a small test program natively
19:59:44amiconnIt depends on target, gcc version and optimisation level
20:00:08amiconnIf you need "no" more than once, gcc includes it multiple times when not optimising
20:00:28Mikachubut rockbox always uses at least -O1 doesn't it?
20:00:34amiconnIt does
20:01:26amiconnThe static variable just helps gcc in case it misses the string identities
20:01:42amiconnDon't conclude from building for arch. X to arch. Y
20:01:51amiconnResults can be wildly different
20:02:17*amiconn still doesn't like that sh-elf-gcc aligns strings to 32 bit boundaries

21:55:45SoapI'm trying to rebuild a colinux enviroment from scratch. I had previously simply updated Jdgordon's prior effort, but I am shocked by how much smaller the archive is for the VMWare image, I figured I might have some cruft, so I started from scratch.
21:55:55rp-de addition from r0 and r4?
21:56:46linuxstbYes - it's R0 := R0 + R4
21:57:12linuxstbYou may find the "arm quick reference" helpful - google for it.
21:57:50rp-i have it, but i wasn't sure if such a statement makes sense or if it is valid

22:38:46tucozbluebrother, i was thinking about a possibility to create a quick-start manual as a separate download (.pdf) where we only ship the introduction chapters.
22:39:01rp-amiconn: thx
22:39:06amiconndionoea: The PP chips feature 2 ARM7TDMI cores, which are arm V4T
22:39:10bluebrotherhmm. You think it's worth the work?
22:39:12tucozlike a getting-started, where plugins etc are left out
22:39:34tucozi do not think it's that hard. we could opt out the references as a start
22:40:02bluebrotherit shouldn't be too much work, but I'm not sure it's worth it.
22:40:16bluebrotheras the idea was to make the later chapters somewhat an optional read
22:40:17tucozit's just an idea. but i think 144 pages stops a few people from downloading it
22:40:29bluebrotherhehe. Right.
22:40:41dionoeaamiconn: so definitively not ARMV6 compatible i guess ?
22:40:59bluebrotherso we could add a file that simply defines a FULL symbol
22:41:18bluebrotherand include that file if it's present, so the platform file gets somewhat extended
22:41:24dionoeatoo bad :( mru just commited an ARMV6 IDCT to ffmpeg
22:41:40tucozyep. and define a quickstart \def
22:42:06tucozwhere the \ref's are left out
22:42:47bluebrotherhmm, that would break all "see <reference>" stuff
22:43:11tucozi am thinking of the frontpage, install bootloader, install rockbox, and the chapter with the key-reference image is
22:43:40tucozwe could do \nopt{quickstart}{see \reference..} there
22:44:03tucozmakes the "code" a bit messier though
22:44:08bluebrotherI'm not sure if I like the added complexity
22:44:59 Part webguest96
22:44:59bluebrotherIMO we can call it code. In some way we are programming the output ;-)

22:46:42tucozi just wanted to hear if it is worth the effort to see what comes out of it (when i feel i got the motivation to do it)
22:46:42amiconndionoea: It depends on what instructions this idct actually uses. Maybe it can be adapted
22:46:56bluebrotherwe could try it ...
22:47:33tucozthe problem as you say, is the added complexity
22:47:34Mikachuamiconn: i had a thought earlier, just a theoretical question for now. if one huffman-decoded a jpg, could "large" jpg files be viewed then? ie not needing to fit in ram
22:47:38bluebrothermaybe by simply stripping down a set of local copies, and uploading them
22:47:49Mikachuamiconn: iirc you said that was the step that required the mem storage
22:47:50bluebrotherand look if the users like it
22:48:01dionoeaamiconn: i think that already had a ARMV5TE (whatever that is) implementation. So i guess that big parts are V6 specific
22:48:07tucozgood idea
22:48:13bluebrotherif they do we can add the option to svn later
22:48:17dionoeai can post a link to a patch if anyone is interested though
22:48:30bluebrotherand by a simple hack we could ignore stuff like broken references.
22:48:47bluebrothersimply add a front page that states it as experiment ;-)
